PLATINUM END has a lot in common with DN; many of the same concepts and restrictions that surrounded the death notebook apply to the divine objects Mirai Kakehashi receives from ...an angel. The twist here is that the series is really a survival game - one almost exactly like FUTURE DIARY, in fact. (PE's main characters names may even be a reference to that; "Mirai" means future and his angel's name is "Nasse", similar to "nissei" one of the Japanese words for diary.) There are 13 humans given angelic objects and guardian angels and they are competing to become god.
While the series seems familiar, it didn't feel like a retread so much as a reimagining of familiar concepts and the last-page twist in this first volume ensured I'll definitely at least read volume two. Recommended.
